According to The Hollywood Reporter, Glee star Grant Gustin has been cast in Arrow Season 2 as Barry Allen, aka the Flash, setting up The CW’s proposed spin-off series.

The character is set to debut in episodes 8, 9 and 20 with the final one being a backdoor pilot.

The spin-off series is being developed by Arrow co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, as well as director David Nutter. Berlanti, Kreisberg, and DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns – still fondly remembered for a long run on the Flash comic – will write the script for the series.

Arrow Season 1 will be available to own 23 September 2013. Pre-order it on DVD for £21.02 or on Blu-ray for £27.49 from Amazon.co.uk. Season 2 will air on Sky 1 later this year.
